Who's That Guy in the Striped Shirt?

Dave Aiello wrote, "On Labor Day, I officiated three youth hockey games in a pre-season hockey tournament at ProSkate USA in Monmouth Junction, NJ. In a way, this is not surprising because I have been a USA Hockey official since I was in high school, and I am an administrator for the Atlantic District Officiating Program."

"The new development in my officiating career is that I am working a significant number of games early in the season. I can't remember the last time I officiated a game in the month of September. It might be as far back as 1995. I haven't had the time, between my work with the AAHA and my family commitments."

"Now that my wife is a medical resident, I have a large block of unstructured time every fourth day. I'm not saying that I'm glad that she is on-call every few nights, but the predictability of our schedules allows me to plan to officiate games, to act as an instructor at officiating seminars, or to evaluate less experienced officials."

"The nights that I am home by myself are not fun, but they are opportunities to do volunteer work and to develop new business prospects for CTDATA. Hopefully, I will spend this time wisely, and the organizations that I support will profit from my efforts."
